Happy Easter from EBT! Here why you shouldn’t throw out the egg yolks. This study found that eating 18 g of protein from egg whole eggs caused greater stimulation of muscle protein synthesis (MPS) compared to the same amount of protein from egg whites.

This is not surprising given that the egg yolk contains more essential amino acids and nutrients which benefit MPS. So enjoy your ENTIRE Easter egg this year, and go make some gains!
